London Irish have added Fiji international prop Jerry Yanuyanutawa to their squad for the 2012-13 season.

Yanuyanutawa, 27, joins the Exiles from the ACT Brumbies, where he has been since 2010.

He made the first of his three appearances for Fiji against Samoa in the Pacific Nations Cup this summer.

"Jerry has a solid set piece game and is a fantastic ball carrier," Exiles director of rugby Brian Smith told the club website.

"He will give us another option up front, which is crucial during a long and arduous season."

Yanuyanutawa started out as a back rower but was persuaded to play prop by England World Cup winner Trevor Woodman while at Sydney University.
